Are we not going to fill that position? I can understand Shula being OC/QB coach, but are we really not going to get him some help, especially since it's been so long that Shula has actually called plays?

So, it seems we are kinda understaffed.

Pretty sure we'll get one, but they're a low level coach.

It's not considered a highly skilled position. It's more clerical than anything.

Eh, Turner drew up that trick play vs the Texans for Chud, wouldn't surprise me if he's Chud's secret mastermind.

Not that important of a coach but why do you think we aren't going to address it? The offseason has just begun...

No, talking from hours and hours of reading about football. Why would you even go after someone unprovoked? Sam Mills son has the Defensive job and has held it through coaching changes because it's not considered a vital position that requires a special guy. All they do is watch film, count tackles, credit players with yards and receptions, and count mistakes. They need a working knowledge of football but they are supervised errand runners. Notice both our quality control guys got their jobs in the league via nepotism not merit.

I have no doubt they break down footage and make suggestions to the coaches. Their job is vital to the operation. But it is not a highly skilled position and it's mostly clerical, involving game tape and game plans.

QC coaches tend to be guys who are working their way up to position coaching on whatever side of the ball they're assigned to.

Their duties generally involve things like film study but the position is loosely defined so they can be assigned just about anything you want.

Lots of good position coaches and even some OCs and DCs got started this way.

Think of it as an apprenticeship.

i think we'll probably fill out staff jobs at the senior bowl. that seems to be the place to do it.

Pretty good chance that whomever gets the job will be someone few, if any of us, have ever heard of.

If it were the other side of the ball I'd say Babich's kid.

The defensive position is filled, unless they want to move Mills to being the DL assistant only.
